:''This article is about a fictional monster. Do not confuse with Gorgosaurus, a real-life dinosaur.
is a fictional theropod dinosaur created by Toho Studios. He stands 35 meters (105 feet) tall and weighs 8,000 tons in his first appearance. He was an opponent of King Kong in 1967's King Kong Escapes. He later enjoyed a prominent role in 1968's Destroy All Monsters, in which his size was increased to match Godzilla's 50 meter stature. Gorosaurus is a typical giant dinosaur, having no special powers like beams or energy weapons, relying on his strength to fight.
In King Kong Escapes, Gorosaurus is an inhabitant of Mondo Island, the film's primary setting. He attacks and attempts to devour the leading female character, Susan Watson. King Kong arrives to save her and fights Gorosaurus. Kong eventually breaks the dinosaur's jaws, in defeating Gorosaurus. In All Monsters Attack, Gorosaurus appears in the dreams of a young boy. In Godzilla vs. Gigan, Gorosaurus is seen living on Monster Island.
In Destroy All Monsters, Gorosaurus appears on a new island, Monsterland. It is an artificially created environment for the monsters of Earth. He lives with other monsters including Godzilla, Mothra, Rodan, Anguirus, Kumonga, Manda, Minilla, Baragon and Varan. A race of aliens called the Kilaaks invades Earth, capturing and establishing mind-control over the monsters. They then release them in cities throughout the world, with Gorosaurus being released in Paris, France. (In the English dubbed version, Baragon is misidentified as Gorosaurus in the Paris attack.) However, the humans retaliate and find a way to break the mind control.
